This 19th-century Grade II listed cottage is in a wonderfully secluded location boasting access to a private beach and is perfectly situated to explore Lyme Regis and the rugged coastline in both directions.

Found within the grounds of an exclusive estate in Rousdon, this 19th-century, Grade II-listed property is a peaceful retreat for those looking to escape the crowds for a while. Surrounded by extensive grounds and countryside to explore, solo breaks and romantic getaways will be topped off with long walks in the fresh air and days spent on the estate’s private beach. For a tasty start to the day, there is a village bakery 0.5 miles away.

In an open-plan design, the property marries both modern touches with traditional comforts to create a welcoming space. For relaxed mornings and early evenings, the lounge’s sofa and armchair invite you to unwind, whilst the addition of a TV offers extra entertainment. For foodie feasts, the kitchen is at the far end of the property and is well-provisioned with appliances and utensils, including oven and dishwasher. Take your meals around the dining table for two and share anecdotes from the day. As well as the living areas, the property has a bathroom with walk-in shower and heated towel rail. When you are ready to call it a day, a double bedroom awaits. Outside, a small, secluded garden can be accessed across the courtyard through a gate and has both a terrace and lawn.

With so much on offer on-site, it’ll be difficult to leave your haven. That said, there are number of attractions nearby. 3.5 miles from Lyme Regis, the Peal of Dorset, you can look forward to a lively atmosphere as visitors flock to beach hut-lined sea fronts. Shops and eateries can be found in Lyme Regis, Axmouth (3.5 miles) and Seaton (5 miles). For some of the best views in the county, head to the famous Golden Cap, 12 miles away, and snap a picture or two.

had no trouble finding estate but no name outside property so had to phone owners. We where only feet away. The property was very nice. The area is very picturesque with rolling hills all around. The estate itself is spread out and is ideal for walking around. Very quiet and peaceful.

Approx 2.5k is a private beach, walk or drive and there is the coastal path from the estate tRead moreo Lyme Regis or Seaton (about 5k each way). Perfect place for peace and quiet . We would definitely stay again Hide

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
